GUEST,Mr Yeahbut BS: Prince Harry - What a star! (417* d) RE: BS: Prince Harry - What a star! 23 Jan 09

me..? I'm neither royalist or racist..

but I do have a mature positive respect for military service,
and am prepared to give the majority of UK service personel
the benefit of the doubt
that the culturally transgressive language they often use amongst themselves
does not indicate any genuinely significant active racist intent.

.. and yes, at the same time I am uncomfortable with the low level degree of institutionalized tacit racism
that may still be prevelent..

work always needs to be done to improve attitudes,
but human nature is neither yet perfect,
or without contradictions..!!??

Is it really difficult to state whether or not you believe Paki, Towelhead, Sooty and Fuzzie-wuzzie are racist terms, therefore offensive, therefore unacceptable, particularly from members of Britain's most prominent family.

Of course, these are all obviously terms that no sensible person would ever consider 'right' to use in public.
Even, if some of us leftie/liberal/progressive types
may occasionally use them in an 'ironic' cultural context
in converstion with our our closest friends,
we would still need to think twice and proceed with extreme caution..

"A number of people who have given their support to the behaviour of this character have ridden off into the sunset without having the bottle to answer this question, leaving me with the impression that they are either closet racists or supporters of racism by their silence."

So are we all of us damned to be racists by default
we all individually specifically seek to satisfy your personal terms of approval
of our true anti racist credentials ????????????????

well.. I repeat, me..? I'm neither a royalist or a racist..

but I definitely find it difficult to tolerate
self-rightious moral high ground grabbin' smug c@ntz...
